New in this ReleaseSciServer Altair v1.10.0 includes new and updated modules for SciServer Compute, providing you with new features for your Compute notebooks. The new SkyQuery module lets you programmatically access the SkyQuery astronomical cross-matching tool, with which you can match objects in multiple astronomical surveys using advanced Bayesian algorithms. Updates to the SkyServer modules enables you interact with SDSS data in new ways, such as searching by object ID or generating thumbnail images. Lastly, Compute Notebooks are easier to work with now that user authentication happens automatically.
New in this ReleaseAltair v1.9.2 includes updates and fixes to various tools on the SkyServer data access site. The Plate Browser now includes more information about APOGEE plates. The Search tools can now filter results using target flags from both the BOSS and eBOSS surveys, and all Search tools now support input in sexagecimal (hh:mm:ss dd:mm:ss) coordinates.
New in this ReleaseAltair v1.9.1 fixes all links to the SDSS interactive spectrum tool within the SkyServer Quick Look and Explore tools, allowing you to once again to quickly pan and zoom through an SDSS spectrum to see all its lines. The release also introduces a new SkyServer Cross-Match tool, which takes advantage of the new algorithms of SkyQuery. It also adds a new RStudio image to Compute, improves links to API documentation throughout the SciServer system, improves the layout of the login portal, and fixes a few other bugs in SkyServer.
New in this ReleaseAltair v1.9.0 offers the first wide public release of the SkyQuery website, which allows you to quickly cross-match astronomical observations among many catalogs and your own observations.
New in this ReleaseThis update to SciServer Altair includes updates to SkyServer and CasJobs to support the Sloan Digital Sky Survey's Data Release 13 (DR13). It also includes updates to the SkyServer, CasJobs, the Explore Tool, and Compute.
New in this ReleaseThis update to SciServer Altair includes MyScratch, and SciDrive-CasJobs integration. MyScratch will enable you to save CasJobs results to a large temporary scratch database called MyScratch. SciDrive-CasJobs Integration enables data transfers from CASJobs to SciDrive.
